A cattle baron takes in an orphaned boy and raises him, causing his own son to resent the boy. As they get older the resentment festers into hatred, and eventually the real son frames his stepbrother for fathering an illegitimate child that is actually his, seeing it as an opportunity to get his half-brother out of the way so he can have his father's empire all to himself.

Robert Walker & Burt Lancaster Excellent in "Vengeance Valley"
This was a good transition role, playing the part of Lee Strobie, for actor Robert Walker who had played boy next door roles. His next role after "Vengeance Valley" would be playing Bruno Anthony in Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train." Walker plays nicely opposite Burt Lancaster, the latter turning in his usual strong performance. The supporting cast is good and the plot moves along nicely. One of the better westerns on Internet Archive.

Burt Lancaster, what a guy
Not a bad little film. Storyline is bit dated
(a woman having a baby that's... you're have to watch to enjoy.) Robert Walker's character kinda floats through it but Mr. Lancaster, who vouldn't like Owen? Good strong supporting cast
as well. Question: Where's the MGM Lion (Leo) announcing the film?
